||G. S. L. City, U.T. - Great Salt Lake City Corporation 50/25 Cents 186_ Rust UNL/108 Nyholm 116/114. Double Denomination; Inverted Back Printing. Remainder. PCGS Extremely Fine 40. This is an intriguing double denomination error. This type was payable in U.S. Legal Tenders per its obligation. Lithographed, on bond paper, with the Ferd. Mayer & Co. Lithographers, 99 Fulton St. N.Y. imprint on bottom edge. At left is the Freedom statue as used on the $5 Demand and Legal Tender notes. At the lower right is a beehive. Titles are across the top and green protector dies in the center as seen on the 25 cents note. The all green back has counters, and the denomination written on a curved banner. The 25 cents back is inverted to the face as the result of the sheet being turned 180 degrees when doing the second printing, creating the double denomination and also inverted backs. Hole Punch Cancelled and perhaps kept as a sample. The only other note like this is the Ford VI Sale, Lot 640, with a 25 Cents face/50 Cents inverted back which realized $2,760 in October 2004. This is a very attractive note with light folds only and the look of higher grade. An unusual and extremely rare Mormon note error. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
